to be closing up more than 200 points. margie from wells fargo funds management joins us, so does michael from destination wealth management and joe greco will be with us in a few moments here. rick santelli is staying late as well with this rally here. >> ready to go, joe? >> yes. >> what do you make of the rally? >> i guess when republicans want to peek past what is involved besides a tax increase, that signals a compromise. so, the markets say, hey, maybe they'll work things out in washington. the unfortunate thing is this lift today will be met with more selling as we get closer to the holiday and the long weekend. >> this is not a new phase here -- >> you can look at volume, behavior of the trading and it looks like we'll have a little more of a lift. we've broken through a level that held nicely. started to lift onto the tail end of the day. i think if we can get a little closer to the tail end, but toward the end of the year, we'll test higher. >> do you believe this is a rise above rally? do you believe it won't hold? >> it's going to be very choppy. what bill mentioned about the 200-m
" gets under way right now. >>> welcome to "closing bell." bill griffeth rejoins us in a moment. no follow-through rally. stocks closing in the red on fiscal cliff fears. dow jones lower by 43 points, 12,966. nasdaq finishes higher by nearly 10, 2,976. and the s&p down almost 3%, 1406. >> the deadline for the fiscal cliff is nearly one month away. if we go over that cliff, russ says some investors are not prepared for that decline. >> he joins us now a long with michael, cnbc contributor for destination wealth management and mary thompson joins us as well. russ, you're saying it's not priced in at this point. what should we be worried about? >> it's not priced in. it's very hard to find much evidence, either from investors or the sell side that people really expect to go over the fiscal cliff. i think what that means is if we get into the end of the year and looks like negotiations are not going forward, we may not solve this before 2013, we're likely to see rise in volatility, likely to see selling. >> how bad could it be? >> if you look at what might happened, in other words,
a shortened week. let's bring in our guests for their take on what went on. with us now, chip dixon, jeff cox, and rick santelli. nice to have you on the program. thanks for joining us. chip, let me begin with you. haven't see you in a little bit. we used to talk long ago when you were at a different firm. welcome back to cnbc. >> thank you. >> you are the director of research discern. what is your research telling you here about where we are in this market and in this cycle for the economy? >> well, it tell us that the housing sector is improving and the residential side. commercial permit activity, which we see, has gone up, it's kind of plateauing. it tells us we're dealing with a lot of uncertainty out there. there's a tremendous amount of pent-up capacity in corporate america if we can just get the right fiscal policies in place. this economy could do well. >> do you think things loosen up after the election when we know who the president will be? >> i think it depends. then we're going to have more clarity on the policies. what we want in place are constructive growth oriented fiscal po
wood, rick santelli, and michael jones. guys, good to see you. thanks so much for joining us. steven, what's your take on the markets right now and this storm? how does it impact the economy and the markets from here? >> i think it's modestly constructive. i think we're still in the middle of the square root shaped economic recovery we've been in for over three years now. a grinding upward trend within the data. i think you saw some of the positive news. i think the chinese numbers were a little stronger than many had figured. so the global economy may not be decelerating as quickly as many had feared, but certainly earnings are going to trump a lot of investors coming into the season. i think coming into the fourth quarter, earnings are going to be critical but revenue is going to be extremely critical in an economic environment that's grindsi grinding upward. >> kevin, what about you? i know you're growing increasingly pessimistic about the impact of the fiscal cliff. what else is becoming a drag in terms of uncertainty on in economy and the market? >> i think right now markets are
that the election is behind us, we now focus on the fate of the fiscal cliff. mike gibbs of raymond james says we get a compromise and this is the time to buy into weakness. nathan backrack of the financial network group is not as convinced. they are here along with david cass of matrixes a s es s ass and meg. gentlemen, lady, good to have you on the program. thank you so much. nathan, i kick it off with you. if we are heavy in stocks and depending on congress, you better buckle up. tell us why. >> well, because we're going to be all over the place right now. when i hear speaker boehner, who's just about 20 miles north of me, start to say all the things that are going to happen, it reminds me of my first sales manager who says, great, i'll wait to see it before i'm going believe it. right now, wall street has given a very clear message to president obama, which s oh, you think you know business, watch this. so now you're going to learn and you're going to learn real fast. a correspondence course is not going to help. we're going to be all over the place. my sense is until we get through with gr
your money is? welcome to the "closing bell." bill griffeth rejoins us in a moment. here's how we're shaping up at end of the day. the dow jones industrial falling by 88 points. pretty much the lows of the session. 12,879, matching what we saw when harry reid began making comments about an hour and a half ago. the nasdaq lower by nearly nine points. the s&p lower by seven points. 1399, just below the 1400 level. why the late-day selloff? most on the street blaming these words out of washington about fiscal cliff. >> there's been little progress with the republicans, which is a disappointment to me. they've talked some happy talk about doing revenues, but we only have a couple weeks to get something done. so we have to get away from the happy talk and start talking about specific things. >> as we head into the fiscal cliff negotiations, my advice to the president would be seems like our friends on the other side are having some difficulty turning off the campaign. we need to sit down and work this matter out. >> behind closed doors. even with the fiscal cliff looming over the marke
is joining me. we also have john buckingham of al frank asset management. thanks, everybody, for joining us. first, michelle, let me get your news, the latest on the attack out of israel on hamas. this, of course, another major news story today that we're following and the reason oil prices have spiked. >> the latest is the israelis have said there's going to be a lot more of what you've already seen. let's show you what's already happened. this video is incredible. it's released by the israeli defense forces. follow that car. what you'll see is not a car bomb. it is a targeted attack by the israeli air force. inside the military leader of hamas was directly targeted. this is operation pillar of defense. it was announced today on twitter by the israeli defense force. take a look at what the spokesperson posted on twitter. he said, we recommend no hamas operatives, whether low level or senior leaders show their face above ground in the days ahead. one of the reasons why oil spiked earlier. the israelis say this is in response to hundreds of rocket attacks coming into gaza over the last sever
. the dow is up by 44 points. the nasdaq up by 16. the s&p 500 joining us there gaining 0.5% or about six points. >> yes, i ran fast, mandy. earlier today, john boehner, the speaker of the house, spoke. the markets spiked. as you hear this sound bite, we're going to show you the dow intraday, what it did, and where you see the spike. it's a spike of more than 100 points. that's when speaker boehner spoke. listen to this. >> i believe that we can do this and avert the fiscal cliff that's right in front of us today. >> is this really what led to today's midday turn around, or was it something else? let's talk about that. quincy crosby joins us. mark spellman and kevin carone. quincy, is it that simple? they came out, they used the word constructive, framework, corner stone, all those positive words, and the market took off. >> absolutely. i was watching the body language when they finished up. they walked together. they didn't separate. the market kept making gains. it was that immediate. >> mark, do you agree? >> yeah, i think it was important. we've been looking for good news. the fact th
us. rick, i'm going to kick this off with you. what are traders saying ahead of tomorrow's election? >> they certainly expect a lot more movement in markets tomorrow and the following day. today was a go nowhere range day. even in the stocks they move into positive territory. dollar index has been firmly but lightly in positive territory with little turnover. same with the euro. many traders are saying, you know, it was momentum that propelled the giants in baseball. so, they're putting a lot of stock in momentum, which may be a positive for the challenger in the form of mitt romney but everybody has their own unique foibles how they want to proceed on the trading side. traders aren't giving me anything solid as a glimpse into who wins but they seem optimistic they think the fiscal cliff will be dealt with, but it won't be dealt with until next year and dealt with retrospectively. >> i would agree, that's what people are saying now. chris, regardless, you're saying you're staying neutral before the election. what does that mean? where are you putting your money right now? >> i think
for joining us, everybody. why do you think that? >> well, as many of your guests have told you today, it's removing that uncertainty. i think this market doesn't care who wins. they'll finally put it to rest. they'll finally know who they're dealing with. it's better the devil you know than the devil you don't. >> gary, you're really focused on that fiscal cliff. are they going to be able to work this out? tell us how you envision this taking place after the election. >> we think this is the critical problem the country faces after the election. we see several scenarios. one is just kick the can down the road. we don't think that's the most likely scenario. the other is going over the fiscal cliff. we don't think that's the most likely scenario. we think there will be some compromise which will create some fiscal drag for the economy. >> if they've not been able to come to a compromise on this yet -- and by the way, this all happened one year ago. everybody who was in place today, that includes the president and congress, this happened on their watch. so you would think that they would s
-on cnbc interview. good to have you on the program. thanks for joining us. >> sure, maria. >> well, tell us, what happened first yesterday at final mediation talks? was a deal ever close? >> you know, the judge has a gag order. he'll have my head if i talk about what went on during the mediation, but i think that he wanted to make sure that he did everything in his power to try to find a deal, if there was one to be found. you know, i appreciate the fact that he went through that effort. i was hopeful, but i think realistically that was going to be a tough thing to pull off. >> how much of an implication it was the fact the union leader did not show up to those mediation talks? >> well, the leader of the bakers union sent his second in command to the meeting. i think that part of what we needed to sort of focus on is the hole that's been created by the strike and the financial damage from that strike and our inability to produce at some of our critical plants. really just created a brand new hole that was too large to fill. bankrupt companies don't have a lot of margin for error to begin
